We had a beautiful table outside. Our waitress explained the menu in English pointing out the dishes created by the chef and owner of 27 years. We were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco. We chose a family size appetizer that represented the best of local products. We tried a variety of pastas for the first course. The homemade pasta... More

My daughter and I went to La Taverna because she studied in Perugia for 3 months and it had a reputation for fabulous food. They had a charming outside patio and the restaurant was tucked away in one of the many tiny cobblestone streets in town. Inside, the ambiance was lovely with brick arched ceilings and traditional furnishings. We chose... More

I had a wonderful dining experience here. I greatly appreciated the complimentary glass of prosecco and the delicious appetizer tray (fennel, caper fruits, etc.). The restaurant has a wonderful, old-world ambience. I let the maitre d ' order for me: pasta with truffle sauce, a traditional beef dish. I was so happy. I felt like I wanted to die. Thank... More

First fancy restaurant we visited in Italy. Very nice dining, we had the recommendation of the Chef and enjoyed it thoroughly. Staff was a little arrogant at the start but warmed up later on.

We had been travelling for two weeks and were looking for a special place to celebrate my wife's birthday. This was recommended to us by the hotel. We went on one of the busiest days of the year with a Jazz performance in the restaurant on one of the last days of the jazz festival. We normally would not go... More

La Taverna is a charming brick-vaulted restaurant in the old quarter of Perugia. The staff were surpassingly friendly and helpful and the food very delicious. We particularly appreciated the generously truffled pasta dishes. It fully merits its high ratings here on TripAdvisor.

My husband and I ate here one evening. We were given a prosecco on arrival and some nibbles. We ordered calmaretti for starter and taliglioni with pecorino cheese and pappardelle with ragu for main course with a bottle of water and half a carafe of house white wine. We couldn't resist the desserts which are shown on a sweet trolley,... More

Amazing food and excellent service. Prosecco and antipasto was offered on arrival at no extra charge and they finished off our meal by offering us their inhouse chocolate liqueur. The chef does the rounds and all the staff were very friendly

A busy and efficient restaurant, mostly patronised by tourists like ourselves. We enjoyed the prosecco on arrival, and can recommend the house red too. We ordered a pasta each and a salad to share, which was plenty of food. No need for secondi. The black pepper and truffle pasta was spectacular (from the specials menu). Our tiramisu was not the...
